31 weeks down, 9 to go

Your baby now weighs as much as four navel oranges. (Length: over 16 inches, head to heel.)

And here's a really bad picture of me, taken a couple nights ago. Please remember this was taken at night, after a long day, after a lot of stress, after (I don't know what else, but there's gotta be a reason I look so bad.) (Also, please ignore my dirty door.)

And I can't believe I'm posting this one, but it needs to be documented right? Besides the fact that I started contracting sooner with this pregnancy than any other, and I'm already heavier than I've ever been (with weeks still to go), and my stomach's measuring bigger than it should be (which I've never done) that's not all that's different about this pregnancy. This time, I also get to experience bloating. I've never done this before. Never! And now, every day when I take off my socks, it almost looks like I still have socks on! I practically have cankles. I'm telling you, this boy better be worth it! :)

Oh, in this picture you need to ignore the dirty couch. I've given up on having clean walls and couches and that sorta thing until the kids get older. There's just no point in stressing over getting them sparkling clean, just to have them marked up 10 minutes later.

I think you look great!!

Do you have any pictures of your broken "cankle..."

Sometimes I get "cankles" and I'm not even pregnant... just old! LOL

Are you ever going to address the broken foot? I was very swollen with Mason and Lila. I'll have to email you a picture. I had the feet of a 400 lb. woman. You look great!

Oh, you bring back the memories! I was SO bloated, and my socks did that to me, look great, not big at all, just a little tired. You are an awesome mom Kathleen, and I can't wait to see what a boy looks like!!
